Aardwolf Pestkare takes pest management into the digital age by pairing the use of the Canon PIXMA iP100 portable inkjet printer with an Android tablet.
In the first 3 years of the company’s existence, technicians from pest control specialist Aardwolf Pestkare had been manually filling out service reports for each on-site servicing run.
But the quality of handwriting and the possibility of accidental damage often left the reports illegible; this made record keeping a fairly difficult task.
To solve this issue, the company introduced computerization, via the use of electronic PDAs. After 10 years, this system was starting to show its age too. So the company looked at the latest IT products to further digitize service reporting and to tap on the full potential of 3G technology.
Following a successful trial run, Aardwolf Pestkare made the switch to an Android tablet and printer combination in May 2012.

The optional car charger and rechargeable battery kit meant it can even be used when no power source is available.
Canon was also on-hand to smoothen Aardwolf Pestkare’s transition to this new system and offered the company useful tips on getting the most out of the printers. This after-sales support played a big part in the company’s decision to choose Canon as its equipment partner.
As the first and only pest management company in Singapore to adopt a tablet-and-printer workflow, Aardwolf Pestkare shares Canon’s belief that technology should be at the forefront of a company’s drive to better operational efficiency.
This partnership is another example of how Canon is leading the way in helping companies big and small take their business to new heights.
